Handbags and Burritos

Yesterday I ate a burrito, played with my camera and my friends




and then a man tried to steal my handbag, But I didnt let go. There are somethings which this girl would never let go of and clearly my handbag is one of them.





Autumn is beautiful and sadly it is fadeing and the bright leaves are being replaced by twinkly christmas lights.


Fair trade.

Cornered Beef

Having a reletionship with someone where you dont share the same first language can be fun, confusing, frustrating and often amusing...

My boyfriend and I communicate in english, Spanish is his first language but he learnt english while working in London.

Some people have great trouble understanding him but I find it easy.


Hes a chef and recently he called me when I was out and told me he made me dinner. "I have made you arepas and cornered beef" he told me.

I laughed but he still dosnt seem to understand whats so funny about cornered beef!

(he is cute though)


(I had images of coming home and him looming over a poor lump of beef in the corner o the kitchen)

p.s Play was great, next week Im working with a drag queen yay yay!

Red hair and sequins

Remember when I said I was going to grow me hair ad keep it brown? Well I didnt. Instead I moved in to a flat that has beautiful autumnal leaves around the windows. So instead I decided to do a short side a lá the Galmouria and dyed it a red the colour of grenadine.


But this colour
The days are shorter, the nights are darker. I want to sparkle.

My whole life Ive been hooked on changeing the house to suit the seasons. Id spend hours pouring over my moms "country living" magazinez, collecting wildflowers and drying leaves, longing for dry summers and winters so I could recreate the candle light dinner parties and picnics.


My nesting instinct is strong, any new room I move into is immediatly filled with lamps, scarves, pictures, all the little objects I have picked up, grown attached, or carted from house to house and back forth from ireland with me over the year.

Christmas is of course the ideal time for someone like me, an oppertunity to go over the top and decorate without anyone telling me not too! Heres some fotos from my house last year...
I wonder what ll do this year :-)

p.s Ohai (inside a black apple) lady...can I have you room please?
